Have you tried improving your Excel-skills, only to give up?
Are you short on time?
If so, you’re not alone!
Recently, I polled our +50,000 subscribers and asked them:
“What’s holding you back from achieving the skills you want in Excel?”
They gave 2 answers:
#1: They had already tried improving their Excel-skills. But Excel was too overwhelming and confusing. They had given up!
#2: They lacked the time necessary. Our readers had been told they needed to set aside several hours per day before making any progress.
Like many others, Dave believes it takes tons of time to learn Excel.
To be honest, those answers didn’t shock me.
I experienced the same when I started learning Excel 7 years ago…
Everyone expects you to know your way around Excel. But nobody takes the time to teach you the ins and outs of Excel.
+90% achieved their current Excel-skills from a grueling try-fail-persevere approach.
Albeit noble, it’s very ineffective (and extremely frustrating!).
It Took Me 7 Years to Learn Excel.
It’ll Take You 14 Hours.
7 years ago, I faced a choice:
- Learn Excel to get the job opportunities of my dreams
- Give up on learning Excel and hope I’d figure something out
I figured it’d be career suicide not to learn Excel, so I went with 1!
🤔 “But where to start?” 🤔
Excel is the most advanced, mainstream, software available.
Excel has +300 shortcuts, +400 functions, along with hundreds of different features.
I remember feeling so overwhelmed by all the formulas, functions, and options.
Also, I didn’t have anyone who could help me out and tell me what to do.
My first experience using Excel wasn’t the most exciting.
Here I am in a statistics class where I was first introduced to Excel😂
The Journey to Learning Excel Begins…
I started learning Excel by “Googling” and searching for videos on YouTube.
I could only hope what I read and watched was correct.
Fast-forward to 4 years later, and I had achieved a decent skill level in Excel.
I finally started thinking “Hey, I’m quite good at this!”.
This was the most awesome feeling ever😁
– I no longer feared every task my boss sent me.
– I didn’t have to embarrass myself by asking my colleagues for help.
– I didn’t get angry with Excel for not doing what it was “supposed to”.
At the same time, I couldn’t help but think:
It shouldn’t take 4 years to go from zero to “okay”…🤔
Fast-forward to today, 7 years later from when I first started learning Excel, and I am much more than “Okay”.
Today I’m a certified Microsoft Office Specialist🎓
+50,000 people have signed up for my courses, and +400,000 read my tutorials every month.
I’ve worked as a consultant charging $160/hour to create Excel-systems for businesses of all sizes.
All this experience has given me the skills to take a student (you!) from zero to hero in just 14 hours.
Think about it:
